Carabaloo is a lovely, simple sleeveless A-lined dress with a keyhole button detail at the back. It’s fully faced, with a lined bodice which can be extended for a reversible dress, and a deep faced hem, providing weight and structure as well as a professional finish.
Designed with a loose (but not baggy) fit, the dress will grow with your child, from a knee-length dress, to a loose top-with-leggings, for maximum use and wear.
Inspired by a Mary Quant mini dress seen in the V&A museum, this dress should sit just above the knee – a gorgeous vintage length.
The instructions are clear and comprehensive with digital illustrations throughout and include suggestions for variations to include lined, contrasting hem or A-line top.
The digital patterns are provided in both large (A1) and small formats (A4 / US letter) and are layered, so you can turn off the layers you don’t need to use for clarity and ease of size identification.
Sizes 1-12 are included within this pattern.
